When former TV anchorwoman Letizia Ortiz married Spain's Prince Felipe before a sea of dignitaries a decade ago, hopes were high that her lack of royal blood would help her bond with the public. But as the couple mark their 10th wedding anniversary on May 22, 2014, Spaniards' affection for the princess -- the first commoner in line to be queen in Spanish history -- is lukewarm even though her husband's standing is at an all-time high.
